Shuffle Your Senses


From Rob Walker

  • Identify a meaningful smell — what would it look like?
  • Identify a striking sight — what does it sound like?
  • Identify a notable sound — what might it taste like?
  • Identify a distinct taste — how could it feel?
  • Identify a specific tactile sensation — what sort of smell does it have?

Maybe do one a day.

Now re-arrange the senses and do it again. And again.

A interesting variation on the Five-Senses-Exercise and a way to mix up your writing
